Club eyeing move for Swansea City attacker

Published

Ligue 1 side Marseille could be set to re-sign Swansea City winger Andre Ayew, according to reports from FootballGhana.com.

After a nine-year stay at the French club, the 29-year-old made the move to Swansea in 2015, signing for the Welsh club on a free transfer after scoring 52 goals in 181 games for Les Phocéens.

But the Ghanaian winger then scored 12 goals in 35 appearances for the Swans, before signing for West Ham United for a reported fee of £20.5m in 2016.

But after a turbulent spell with the Hammers, Ayew re-signed for Swansea for a club-record fee in January 2018, but he has since made just 12 appearances for the club upon his return to the Liberty Stadium.

Ayew spent the entirety of last season on loan with Fenerbahce, but the winger could now be set to re-sign for another former club in Marseille, according to Footballghana.com.

The winger’s contract deal expires at the end of next season, and with the European transfer window still open, a move away from the Welsh club could well be on the cards.

Speaking after his side’s 0-0 draw with Derby at the weekend, Swansea boss Steve Cooper admitted that he was looking forward to working with the wide-man in the near future.

The Verdict

I think that it would be best for both parties if Ayew were to leave Swansea this summer.

He still has a couple of years left on his contract at the Liberty Stadium, so the club really don’t have a reason to sell him, so they could get a really decent amount of money for him.

Swansea added Aldo Kalulu and Kristoffer Peterson to their ranks in the summer, meaning that Ayew has slipped even further down the pecking order.
